Chesterfield take hilarious swipe at Tottenham as non-league minnows joke even they managed to score against Chelsea

CHESTERFIELD trolled Tottenham after the non-leaguers succeeded against Chelsea where the Prem giants failed.

The National League high-fliers scored when losing 5-1 at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup, whereas Spurs fired banks blanks in exiting 3-0 on aggregate to the Blues in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.


The fifth-tier club were promoted to the top level for humour after tweeting: "Well, not everyone can score against the European Champions…"

Alongside that, they posted two photos – sub Akwasi Asante celebrating his late consolation goal with team-mates, PLUS Tottenham's second-leg misery.

And the light-hearted jibe hit the back of the net on social media.

One footie fan replied: "What!! Officially my 2nd team!! Do I need a form or something to join the fan base?"

Another added: "This is why Chesterfield are bigger than Manchester United."

Spurs were denied by VAR three times on Wednesday night after Antonio Rudiger's early goal clinched Chelsea's 1-0 away win and 3-0 triumph overall.

But mostly Tottenham's display showed why manager Antonio Conte is struggling to find goals, despite attacking talents like Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

In contrast, Chesterfield won over supporters with their Twitter titter.

One said: "How can I watch Chesterfield games? I am their supporter just joined. From a Chelsea’s fan."

Admittedly, a grumpy poster wrote: "Rather they lose a League Cup semi than play in the National League #smallclub."

But he was swiftly reminded it was all just banter: "Did you really get upset by that? Christ."
